The next Ultimate fight, based off of The Dragonsong War, was slated to hit the game in patch 5.55, but because of complications caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been pushed to launch in patch 6.1 instead. We’re unsure if this means that Endwalker will have three Ultimate fights, but get ready to probably take on Thordan and Nidhogg (again) in 6.1.

Stats are getting squished down

To put it simply, numbers in Final Fantasy 14 are getting way too big. They’re getting so high that they’re somewhat breaking the system. So to remedy this, Square Enix is squishing the stat gains from level 50 and higher. Things will feel mostly the same, though doing older content unsynced may be a bit harder.

Players will be able to travel to other data centers
